Late last Sunday afternoon I had some free time, so hit up the Jüchen skateranlage/skatepark. This was my 2nd visit there in a few months. It’s got plenty to offer: a few ledges, manual pad, a smallish rail, 3 stair and a couple of banks. There is loads of space to roll around and practise your flat ground. The only downfall of this place is the ground trashes your deck (it’s smooth asphalt) and all the wack graffiti.
Out of all the pre-made skateparks nearby this is definitely worth skating and is great fun. You can find it next to the school’s carpark, Stadion Straße 77 in Jüchen.

I read an article online last month that they were building a skatepark / skateranlage (as they call them here) in Neuss Allerheiligen. There seems to be no other information about it, so I thought I would go down there to check it out for myself. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to roll about.
Anyway in short, it is a nice LITTLE park. The triangle slopped ledge/curb looks fun and the rest of the street obsticles too. But makes me wonder is who is behind these kind of projects & why don’t they speak to skaters before they design / build them? Sorry, but a massive bowl is not overly practical & will not get much use (I doubt BMXers or even Rollerbladers either). I am not complaining here but with all the money spent they could have used the space much better & catered it more for what the youth want.
Oh and most importantly it is located at Am Henselsgraben in Neuss Allerheilegen.
